Electric guitar aficionado Brad Paisley recently posted a video on social media of himself learning the guitar solo to Kelsea Ballerini’s “Hole In The Bottle” from her new album, kelsea. In the video, Paisley switches off between playing the actual track on his computer and then turning the camera on himself so he can give it a try on his guitar. After trying the solo a few times, Paisley says, “Screw it. Great song Kelsea. I’ll keep working on it. I’ll get it.”
In the caption, Paisley wrote, “Learning the solo from the Kelsea Ballerini song ‘Hole in the Bottle’ off her new album. It’s great. I suck. But go stream it now to hear it right. I’m gonna go practice.”
Ballerini reposted the video on her socials, writing, “When guitar hero, legend country artist, and newfound friend @bradpaisley learns the “hole in the bottle” guitar solo…. saga Volume 1.”
Paisley isn’t the only artist highlighting Ballerini’s new album. Carrie Underwood recently congratulated Ballerini on the release on Twitter, writing, “Now’s a good time to listen to some new music. Today, I listened to the new @KelseaBallerini album. Early favorite is DEFINITELY #HoleInTheBottle! Cheers!”
Kenny Chesney, who duets with Ballerini the album’s track, “Half Of My Hometown,” also congratulated her on the release. “Congrats on your album release @kelseaballerini. Proud of you and our song #halfofmyhometown,” he wrote on Twitter.
In the comments for the Brad Paisley video, a fan pointed out all the praise the album has been getting from big name artists, to which Ballerini replied, “I can’t even talk about it.”
